    It's hard to get upset over a franchise that has already been raped several times.

    In PP you waste time pixelhunting, in the video the player just clicks an icon.
    My expectations are low but calling it a nuCOM clone is just wrong.

    Rotatable 3d isometric cameras with zoom were a mistake. The fact they usually accompany games with a modest budget makes them even more egregious and the games they feature in unanimously aesthetically unappealing.

    This doesn't even look horrible, just generic I can't even be really angry at it, I am disappointed.

    Firaxis XCOM quality is probably the ceiling for this.

    At least I give credit to them for showing gameplay in the announce trailer, which nobody does anymore

    That looks awfully high budget for a turn-based game (contrast this with Rage), so they must have high confidence in the team. Not sure a bunch of fantadomats are worth trusting though. :M

    From the official website

    It's set in 2000, which explains why Ivan isn't 50+. Good from a gameplay prospective too since the innovations of the last two decades (cheap body armor, cheap optics, cheap drones, cheap sub-MoA rifles, cheap night vision, even an African shithole having cellphones everywhere) are rather detrimental to JA2's gameplay style. Hopefully it isn't full of anachronisms.

    Edit: Strangely, the AKs seen in gameplay footage (but not art or pre-rendered footage) all seem to be Romanian ones (note the wooden foregrip). Weird choice and I wonder why they went with that. Maybe they're including progression of AK quality (Chinese garbage that uses pen springs<low quality eastern block<Norinco<authentic Russian<modern tacticool)? Alternatively, the devs are Bulgarian (directly north of Romania), so it might just what they had access to for a reference model and the other stuff is by different artist.

    Graphics look very nice, with some nice verticality and tons of cover spots
    Tropico developer means they have skill and experience to do some interesting things with the strategic layer of the game. Hopefully they do some daring things like supply lines and construction of infrastructure.
    But realistically, I think the result would be taking some elements from Rage and Flashback and polishing them to extreme.

    Looks like...
    Body armor will not change merc appearance
    No energy meter, you can sprint and crawl all over with a HK21 possibly without any penalty...

    Wondering about...
    How stealth is going to work and multiple deployment of squads
    Environmental destruction
    M.E.R.C.
    Modes of transportation
    Skill progression

    Interesting note I checked Igor's stat numbers from the trailer to JA2 counterparts and they're the same. No change seems rather weird in this respect considering the passage of time.
